The artichoke dip was great. We will definitely return to this restaurant and look forward to dining on the outdoor patio.

We were there to have a nice quiet lunch and to catch up. The food was very good and it was busy but not loud. The grilled shrimp salad and the dip trio were very good.

We made reservations for our group of three, and after getting there, decided to eat in the bar. Leo was our bartender, and did a great job of taking care of us! Goat cheese appetizer, chicken, shrimp, and lamb dishes were quite good. And you need to try the baklava ice cream cake. The manager dropped by twice to see how we were doing, too- Good experience, we'll be back!

sat in the booth seat against the furthers window. …. SHOCKED. that the end of the wall bench adjacent to mine had an unfinished end panel.
Such an elegant space to see what is still on the “todo” list

A really good neighborhood restaurant. Over the years, the menu has become like a member of the family. We seldom stray from our favorites. Last Friday night proved to be a minor exception as our waiter (he was fantastic) "sold" us on the summer salad with pineapple. We were glad that he did. Delicious. The artichoke hummus, lamb lollipops and chicken gyro were dependably good.

As always our food at Ziziki's was very good. We shared a bottle of rose and then had the "Mediterranean Bread" as an appetizer. The bread and toppings tasted quite fresh. We had chicken and lamb gyros for our main dish and they were tender and tasty.

The restaurant could improve its outdoor dining area. Their spot on Travis has such an attractive patio. Why can't they put large plants on top of the stone walls of the Preston/Forest location so you don't have to look at all the parked cars in the CVS parking lot. How about adding a fountain? Maybe some outdoor drapes to soften the space. We enjoy Ziziki's but they could make their outdoor area MUCH nicer.

Food was great. Service was great. We got in with no wait which was very nice. There were a lot of noisy diners but that was the only drawback to the evening. Overall a wonderful evening and I can’t wait to go again.

The food was excellent, the greek spreads were amazing, and the Mousaka fantastic. Unfortunately, we were seated at a table close to a group of ladies that were extremely noisy and it disturbed our dinner a bit. Service was ok, but a little slow.

As usual the food at Ziziki’s was delicious. Typically we have had excellent service at this location, but our server last night was definitely not up to par. Hopefully, she’s new and it’s just a training issue? It was also warm in the dining room. Next time we’ll ask for table nearer the door where it was cooler.

Hummus was great. Calamari was not crispy. Salad was okay. My friend and I shared everything and both got sick. Don’t know whether it was the lettuce or the calamari.
